Experience is a wonderful thing. After many generations of trial and error, the French have learned to make a delicious drink from a harvest of pure Grenache. Maxwell employ the same approach to create a juicy, rich red wine with a gossamer palate. Maxwell's old Grenache vines have grown for nine decades on a classic contoured hill with south facing aspect. They were bush vines with their thick trunks and sprawling arms until a few years ago when they were lifted up and put on a trellis wire to keep them ripening evenly as they grow older.
Named for the intersection of Olivers and Chalk Hill Road, Brewery Hill Road and Old Ellen Street upon which the Maxwell wineworks are situated. The property sprawls across the southern slope and crest of Lumb's Hill, amongst gently rolling hills just one mile north of McLaren Vale's Main Street. Planted to solid limestone soils, in close proximity to the moderating effects of Gulf of St Vincent, conditions in the vineyards are ideal for producing small quantities of intensely flavoured grapes. The sultry maritime climes achieve remarkable balance of sugar and acids, flavour and tannin. Following the vinification, Four Roads Grenache is matured fourteen months in a selection of seasoned French oak barrels. Alcohol 14.8%
TASTING NOTES
Vibrant red cherry colour with bright pink hues. Aromas of maraschino cherry with white pepper spice and traces of musk. Medium bodied palate showing bright mixed red berry fruits balanced perfectly by savoury spice and hints of lavender on the back palate. Very much in the honest, hearty McLaren Vale style, a highly versatile wine to accompany many different cuisines and occasions, a great match with steak and onions.
